Adam Cvijanovic: American Montage

Friday, May 15, 2015 to Sunday, September 20, 2015
Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

American Montage draws on Brooklyn-based artist Adam Cvijanovic’s merging of influences from nineteenth-century American landscape painting and twentieth-century cinematic techniques. The exhibition features installations and paintings on his signature Tyvek surfaces from the past fifteen years. Cvijanovic’s methods of fracturing, cutting, layering, and sequencing imagery to collapse space, time, and narrative demonstrate a montage of American visual perspective. The exhibition premiers three new works: Flint Hills (2015), inspired by the artist’s site visit in fall 2014; The Fall (Capri) (2015), Cvijanovic’s first work to include a soundtrack; and Hollywood and Sunset (2014–15), his reintroduction of the figure in almost a decade.

This exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Accompanying audio component of The Fall (Capri) is available on The Kemper app. Downloadable from the App Store or Google Play Store.
